    What I'm talking about is real racisim; like categorizing a group of people based on their ethnicity.
    Sup jetagay.

    If someone calls you a fat bitch then its alright to be offended, but lets say you call yourself a fat bitch for whatever reason, then someone else tells you you're a fat bitch. Would you get offended?

    Pretty much the same way blacks use the N word but for some reason everyone else can't. Makes perfect sense, no?

    Exactly what I'm saying. Lemme see you get on your knees, do a few hundred years of labor being called jetafag like it's your first name, whipped occasionally, burnt sometimes, maybe a little flogging, and to top it off, have everyone that's similar to you, including family, be called jetafags. Even after finishing the labor. Jetafag jetafag jetafag.

    There are two types of tragedies in life. One is not getting what you want, the other is getting it.

    If you wake up at a different time in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

    Be careful guys, I don't want this to turn into a flame war.

    Calling someone a niggah is no worse then calling them retarded. I mean, retarded people weren't even given a chance back in the day, they were killed dead on the spot.

    Too many people use it too casually, so no one cares.

    You'll learn all about race and class inequalities and shit. Really get into the dynamics in society. A lot of our perceptions of race are based on people's socioeconomic status.

The entire education system in the US is stacked against lower class minorities while the middle to upper class whites benefit from everything. And since education and life outcomes are so closely tied that kids who are intrinsically equal from birth end up getting taught in essentially two separate education systems which sets up minorities for failure and whites for success. A lot of our perceptions of different racial and ethnic groups come from their life outcomes, so if the system is set up in a way that minorities fail school then those same minorities are the ones who are more likely to commit crimes and live on welfare etc. In the end the system we have set up for our children fosters a lot of the ideas we come up with about certain people and races.

    A lot more is going on behind the issue of race then just what one person sees in another. You have to realize that racial thinking isn't something we're born with, it comes from the society we're raised in. We're socialized into thinking about different races in certain ways. You can't say ending racism is simply to get people to be accepting of one another. There is a lot more going on then you may think. Ending racism calls for major social reform of many social institutions such as our education system. Racism is more complicated than we can ever comprehend.

    So while you may hate racist people etc, just remember that there is a lot more at play then just some ignorant people spewing hate.

    Humongous difference between nigga and nigger. Nigga is the same thing as dude. Literally. "back off nigga" "back of dude". Nigger is racist. You don't throw that around. There's a reason we say nigga. It's softer and more friendly (kinda). You can throw around nigga.

No. Will the hippo get mad at being called hippo? Yes. Explains my case.
    Just lose some weight

    I think the major issue lies within cultural traiditions and such, much like the example Jeta posted in the OP. When racism remains a part of tradition is when I get mad. I don't give a shit if you call me a chink, a slanty, a slopey, a rice farmer or anything like that. I don't give a shit. Just don't tell me I can't date an Aussie, or a Columbian just because my eyes are thinner than yours

    Well nigga derives from nigger; I don't see how it could be any better :/ That's subjective though and also a never ending debate so there's no point getting into it.

    And what Doc said is exactly what I'm getting at.

    Amazing analogy I have to say (if that's the right word for it). Thats why the whites are the ones hated the most by every other race. They seem to think they own the world. They don't. A black man does. Barack Obama owns the world. Anything he does can change it in a snap. They blame him for everything bush fucked up. Sorry that he's trying to help the whole damn world. Not like the education system is going to allow black students much of anything. Obama was lucky he lived in a good area with a good school.
